Chances are that many ​of our school parents do not have some critical documents for the protection of their families. These include a Will, durable powers of attorney (standard and for health care) or a living trust. Yes, such legal documents may not be needed for many years. But that is not always the case. Unexpected events in life can impact your family. There is information parents should consider to safeguard especially their children. 

    On Sunday, October 21, at 1:00 p.m. there will be a one-hour seminar at Immanuel. Bill Burmeister, Planning Counselor of the Michigan District CEF, will speak and answers questions about this important area of Christian stewardship. The seminar examines how you can begin to make an estate plan and what you can do to make life easier for your families in the event of something unexpected. Please invest the time to think about these important things.

After the concert everyone is invited to a dessert buffet in the Great Room. The families of students in the third, fourth, and fifth grades are asked to bring a sweet treat for the buffet. Please bring your dessert to the Great Room by 6:30 PM before the concert. Set it on the tables provided for that purpose. When you are ready to leave the reception, kindly take your serving dish and the remainder of your treat home with you. No one will be in the kitchen to wash dishes or sort the remaining desserts.

    This year, the theme for the school year is Armor Up. Devotions will be themed towards this idea. The teachers have chosen Ephesians 6:11-18 for the school Bible Scripture for this year. It begins, “Put on the full armor of God so that you can take stand against the devil’s schemes.”

    Christ the King Lutheran School believes in the Biblical concept of Matthew 18. Jesus says that if you are upset about what someone has done to you, please talk to them first. If that meeting does not resolve the problem, then come and ask for help from another person.

    Hey Parents, please remember that when you attend St. Paul or Immanuel Lutheran Churches, please fill out a record of attendance card and hand it to the elder on duty. I want to make sure that you are fulfilling your requirement for church attendance at these two churches. If you attend a different LCMS church, please grab a bulletin for me. Thanks.
